With gay ban debate over, military impact in doubt

Dec 19, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Boston.com

The debate over gays in the military has been settled with a historic decision to allow them to serve openly, but big questions lie ahead about how and when the change will take place, how troops will accept it and whether it will hamper the U.S. military effort in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Many will disagree with the end of banning gays, in good conscience. They will keep their feelings to themselves and do their duty.

Some will disagree and sound off. If they sound off too much they will be reprimanded.

Some will disagree and leave the military.

Some will disagree, sound off, and not cease and desist after being reprimanded. They will soon find themselves in another line of work.

And life will go on in the United States of America...

I personally believe that not much will change except the fact that Gays and Lesbians WON'T have to worry about being discharged any longer.

I doubt that there will be Same-Sex Couples going to the Marine Corp Ball and for the most part.......Gays and Lesbians will keep their families safe and secure.......and will share with those they trust........anything else is purely exaggeration and not likely to happen.

The sooner this get's implemented.......the better off things will be and everyone can focus on getting home safely!

There aren't enough homosexuals to operate the military. And you can count on this hurting recruiting efforts and keeping people enlisted.

I don't think the reprimands are going to be given to the straight soldiers. If a gay wants to run around pushing homosexuality they won't last either, who are you kidding. Nobody is going to stand for that either. This doesn't give then a license to do anything, all it says is that they can't be kicked out for admitting they're gay. People like you probably fantasize about a military folsom street fair. That a'int ever happening. We might eventually have to reinstate the draft though. Maybe some of your relatives will have to go like it or not.

It might have hurt recruitment when you were young.

But the world has changed. Today, most under 30s don't care if they are around gays. They are accustomed to gay peers, gay relatives, gay celebrities. Homophobia afflicts the elderly, but the elderly don't enlist.

No need for a draft, there will continue to be a steady stream of volunteers; and fyi, several of my relatives have volunteered and served in Iraq & Afghanistan. One is still in Afghanistan.

How about you?

"military impact in doubt"?!!

The relentless, perverse lib media spin is both laughable and tragically disingenuous. If military impact was ever in doubt, it would never have been an issue to begin with.

America is waking up to their brand of horse crap.

Yep, as predicted the anit-gays are now predicting the end of the world.

Keep it up chicken-littles. You just make yourself look even more foolish.

Wow! Does he like it best when one of your American-hating taliban brethern straps it on and gives it to him from behind? Or when he's sitting on it? Does your adorable little he-she chant "mmm mmm mmm" with every thrust? Or mumf, mumf, mumf?!
Did you have Kinko's replicate your personal photo album for use as a skewering instruction manual for those poor victimized murdering terrorists? Have you petitioned your kenyan stooge to further modify their Miranda Rights to include the phrase, "you have the right to anal pleasure and sticking it up the ass of Americans, just like the democrats"?
Yes, insight into the subversive anti-American mind is always helpful....so how do you like it? Taking it upside down while singing a muffled rendition of the Soviet anthem with a kenyan mango stuffed in your mouth and trying to read your propagandist paycheck upside down?
Laughing Lobotomy, did you say something?

A recent joint study conducted by the Department of Health and the Department of Motor Vehicles indicates that 23% of traffic accidents are alcohol related.

This means that the remaining 77% are caused by assholes that just drink coffee, carbonated drinks, juices, yogurts, and crap like that.

Therefore, beware of those who do not drink alcohol. They cause three times as many accidents.

This message is sent by someone who worries about your well-being.

Also, it's been nearly 16 months since Ted Kennedy has been sober.

About 80% of the military were were dead set against
integrating blacks into ranks after WWII, but learned to live with it after Truman insisted.

They can do it again.

White soldiers soon found out that the black guys weren't going to try to kiss them or make out with them. Birds of a feather flock together.

The homosexuals are now demanding a special pay increase because of their life style.
They want reparation.

It is only fair to allow straight men to shower with straight women.
Their sexual attraction is WOMEN.

After all, homosexual men are allowed to take showers with normal men.
Their sexual attraction is MEN in general.

Hussein Obama has homosexualized, feminized and de-balled the military, what's left of it.

Just like hetero soldiers will soon find out that gay guys aren't going to try to kiss them or make out with them.

Race and behavior are two separate things.

Get a life!

A majority of blacks disagree with the gay movement using civil rights to justify their special rights.
